The suspected recruiter for the Islamic State (ISIS), Abdussalam Enesi Yunusa, who was arrested by the Department of State Security (DSS) on Monday, has been disowned by the Federal University of Technology, FUT, Minna.
Yunusa was said to be a 400-level undergraduate student of the University, where he was studying for a degree in Information and Media Technology before he was arrested by the DSS in Kano for his “covert drive to indoctrinate and recruit susceptible youths in the country” to join ISIS.
